Transportation company switches 600+ trucks to renewable diesel

November 11, 2018 |

In California, transportation and logistics company, Ecology, switched its fleet of more than 600 trucks to run on Neste MY Renewable Diesel and is reporting cleaner fuel filters, fewer maintenance problems and reductions in tailpipe emissions.

Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a low-carbon, drop-in fuel fuel produced from 100% renewable and sustainable raw materials, primarily wastes and residues that requires no blending, no engine modification and is compatible with all current infrastructure.

Ecology is one of the largest trucking and transportation companies in the Western United States, providing services for bulk waste and recyclables, heavy haul and oversize loads, and containers to and from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Ecology is also a large transporter of bulk waste and recycling materials, moving millions of pounds to disposal or recycling facilities every year.

Switching 600 trucks, which drive on average 25,000 miles per year at approximately 2.5 mpg (according to the Federal Highway Administration and American Public Transit Association’s Public Transport Fact Book) means that Ecology’s Greenhouse Gas emission reductions are equivalent to taking 9,600 cars off the road and providing the same environmental benefit as 53,000 acres of forest.
